Former President Donald Trump met with two infamous antisemites, disgraced rapper Kanye West and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes, at his Mar-a-Lago estate this week, according to Politico reporter Meridith McGraw
“According to a source, far-right extremist Nick Fuentes was spotted with Kanye West at Mar-a-Lago. West tweeted last night he met with Trump at the club. West and Fuentes were also seen together at Miami airport,” McGraw wrote on Twitter.
Note: Trump’s campaign provided Breitbart News with this statement from President Trump: “Kanye West very much wanted to visit Mar-a-Lago. Our dinner meeting was intended to be Kanye and me only, but he arrived with a guest whom I had never met and knew nothing about.”
Right Wing Watch shared a video of pair at Miami airport, with the caption: “On his way to meet Trump at Mar-a-Lago yesterday, Kanye West was filmed walking through Miami’s airport with misogynistic antisemitic white nationalist Christian fascist incel Nick Fuentes.”
Fuentes routinely expresses antisemitic and white nationalist views. A clip from 2019 shows Fuentes denying the Holocaust by comparing the death of Jews in ovens to baking cookies.
“It takes one hour to cook a batch of cookies, and you have 15 ovens probably in four different kitchens, right? Doing 24 hours a day every day for five years, how long would it take you to make six million? Hmmm. I don’t know. It certainly wouldn’t be five years, right? The math doesn’t quite seem to add up there,” he said.
“I don’t think you would get to six million,” he added.
He was also filmed saying Jim Crow was “better for” white people and black people.
Fuentes admitted he avoids the term “white nationalist” purely because it isn’t strategic.
He also blamed Jews for “standing in the way” of overturning Roe Vs Wade.
Trump has not acknowledged meeting either of the two.
Kanye, who legally changed his name to Ye, said he kept Trump waiting.
“Rain and traffic. Can’t believe I kept President Trump waiting,” West tweeted. “And I had on jeans. Yikes. What you guys think his response was when I asked him to be my running mate in 2024?”
A day later, Kanye released a video explaining what allegedly happened when he asked Trump to be his vice president.
The story has exploded across the internet and political circles:
While Trump tried to distance himself from Fuentes and denials gave way to confirmation that the neo-Nazi did, indeed, sup with Trump and West, accounts of the dinner began to trickle out with descriptions of Trump’s very favorable reaction to Fuentes.
And not only are Trumpworld figures leaking details about the dinner to the press, they’re also running to reporters about the internal panic over the dinner, with one figure telling NBC News “This is a fu**ing nightmare!”:
“This is a f—ing nightmare,” said one longtime Trump adviser who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of stoking the former president’s ire at “disloyal” people who criticize him. “If people are looking at [Florida Gov. Ron] DeSantis to run against Trump, here’s another reason why.”
All three sources familiar with the dinner told NBC News there was one glaring inaccuracy in Trump’s statement: Trump knew one of the three “friends” brought by the rapper, Karen Giorno. She was the Trump campaign’s Florida director in 2016 and the former president knows her by name and sight, the sources said. In addition to Giorno and Fuentes, Ye also brought along another man who was an associate, according to the sources.
The source familiar with the dinner conversation said the dinner grew heated after Ye — who announced another run for president in 2024 on Thursday — asked Trump to be his running mate. Trump then began insulting Ye’s ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, according to the source and a video that Ye posted to Twitter on Thanksgiving Day recounting the dinner.
NBC’s Trump sources repeated Trump’s claim not to have known who Fuentes was when the dinner began, but Fuentes himself cast doubt on the idea that Trump was unaware of his existence and significance.
